, along with lindsey graham and senator mccain and others. in the interim, i urged the administration to act immediately to suspend foreign assistance if the tunisian government permitted in obstructing the investigation. on january 4, i received a tepid response from the acting deputy, assistant administrator for public affairs at usaid, which i submit for the record, it was a bland assurance that the tunisian government was cooperating. was cooperating? five weeks and the f.b.i. had to wait? then the f.b.i. three hours to talk to him? and we gave this government $325 million last year. today i wrote usaid expressing my disappointment that the administrator himself could not respond directly to a member of congress who serves on a committee of jurisdiction and further pointed out what should be obvious, the tunisian government did not cooperate. the tunisian government never sought the aid, u.s. taxpayer money was in jeopardy. they have not faced a single consequence for undermining u.s. national security. i submit the letter for the record. sadly, the failure to respond forcibly and
. >>brian: tell me what you think of this from senator mccain and senator rand paul. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say it was because an investigation was going on -- >> had i been president at the time and i found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> those were two of the best statements made along with senator johnson's question. what did she do with the statement from senator mccain and the statement from senator paul? she didn't reply at all. then they went on to the next question. >>brian: her answer was interesting and it was very easy, for four months she had the answer. her answer was everything is addressed to me that comes into the state department. but i don't see every cable. it is not possible. >> it's too much for me to read. you know what? it's her job to know things. it's her job to execute
things that we see greater cooperation on. >> senator mccain. >> thank you. again, thank you for allowing me the honor of introducing you to the committee and i look forward to many of our spirited conversations that we have had for many years. i didn't want to bring it up but since it was brought up, i have to respond again. americans do care. they do care. they do care why four americans were murdered and they do care why the american people were misled. they were misled by the talking points that the sec -- that secretary rice told the american people which were false. they were misled when the information that we needed to know about how those talking points were put together, which we still don't know the answers to, many months later. we were misled when it was -- when we were not allowed to -- when we don't -- still haven't gotten answers why there was not better security at the consulate when there was clear indications of the threat. we were misled when we were not told that there was a request for the 16-member security force to remain at the consulate and were removed. the list
, indeed, more than 500. there was a point where i think we all wished john mccain had won because he made a few -- he made a lot fewer promises. we took the 500, and for the past but for years, in a product that i think is unprecedented in american journalism, we have been following them, calling people, tracking these things, digging into the budget, and really coming up with the definitive report card on how president obama has done in his first term. host: here is the obameter from politifact. 47% of promises kept, the total in the category for those pledges being kept or even in the works is 72%, 73%. guest: it is really a surprise, i think. it is hard to compare to anything because we did not apply the same methodology to previous presidents. but i have got to say, when we saw over the holidays that it was that high, we were really struck that, particularly in an era of dysfunction and gridlock in congress, that president obama had fulfilled or at least partially fulfilled so many -- as you said, 73%. we will talk more about why that is, but i think if you talk to experts who have do
. senator john mccain said i would have liked to have seen some outreej. john thune of dd dd agreed. he said the speech was 30,000-foot stuff and he wasn't doing the outreach stuff he needs to do if he wants to get thinged accomplished in a second term. susan collins said i hoped it would have been a little less partisan at times. after the swearing in ceremonies came the parties. let's say d.c. was rocking into the wee hours. the obamas not only looked amazing, it seemed like they were having a great time. taking it all in. the number of parties were scaled back from the ten four years ago. two last night. there was no shortage of big stars, big moments. brianna keilar has more. >> ladies and gentlemen, my better half and my dance partner, michelle obama. >> reporter: at the commander in chief's ball, jennifer hudson sang "let's stay together" as the first couple danced their first dance of nut term. mrs. obama revealing she chose jason wu yet again to design her inaugural gown. next they appeared at the inaugural ball where 30,000 people were expected to attend. this inaugural ball falls o

obama's inaugural speech. senator john mccain and said there was no outreach to the g.o.p. there's no surprise that they didn't four years, but will a new congress bring a new outlook. and joining us is a freshman congressman, tom cotton, and we contacted every single freshman democrat in congress, none of them agreed to take part in the panel tonight. congressmen, welcome. what do you think of the speech. >> i was in awe, and it was shocking the speech is so liberal. yes, it's president barack obama, he's liberal. i thought some of the things are great. all americans believe in, freedom, and how do we implement that. do we need more government in our lives and spending our children into debt. how do we accomplish things. bring the adults to the table and start soming the economic problems. >> greta: what do you think. >> first the town was typical barack obama i thought. and wanted to paint his opponents as wrong, but morally wrong and doing this with paul ryan for two years, the thoughts of bugetary issues, doesn't engage in ideas calls him names and questions his motives. seco
, susan rice, going out, senator mccain took note on september 15, on 5 sunday talk shows, the secretary today, was rather flip ant, i thought, in saying, going on sunday talk shows is not her favorite thing. as if that would be the first condition that would have to be met for her it tracy th addressn people, she assumed no responsibility, no engage. in the process, your thoughts? did she refuse to do so? and you know, how in the world do you deal with the reality a u.n. ambassador lied to the american people. >> my take on the sunday shows that president, white house, the campaign for president's reelection wanted a political operative on those talk shows that give a political message, not a real message, that had to do with our national security and terrorism in the world, susan rice was very willing to be that political operative, that is her history, that is the role she wanted to continue to play with this administration in that campaign. lou: as we wrap this up. it appears we're in agreement, that nothing new was learned today in this process, we watched a process that took more
enjoy it. the only thing i ever served was a volleyball. senator mccain knows women must still meet the same physical standards as men. you can't become a seal unless you can do what a seal does, i don't mean date kimberly. if you lower standards, putting equality before victory, that is pointless and deadly. win for equality must not come at the expense of the brutal, vicious killing machine that is the awesome american military. we musten deny the bigger truth, one thing important to mankind is not taking a life, but making one. men fought the war so women didn't have to. women had the bigger job, giving birth, making men like me way more expendable. that is science. one man can populate a city, but tons of women to do the same. even a one woman gave birth in nine months and immediately got pregnant again, she made 40 kids in a lifetime. beckel could do it over a weekend. men are doritos and women are diamonds. denying that doesn't help the war effort unless it's a war on common sense. sorry, bob. >> bob: that's all right. >> eric: we're dory toes? freddie yeah. people eat them, w
there are two competing filibuster proposals yours and then mccain levin one, right? >> yes. >> stephanie: and obviously i think your's is vastly preferable. yours mean you have to actually stand there and talk, right? >> it's a proposal that says yes, we should get rid of the filibuster, why you should filibuster over getting to a bill. vote up or down let's get to the vote. but very importantly when you do have a filibuster on a motion to proceed -- on a bill itself then people should have to stand -- they should have to stand and debate. one it takes time and energy so it's not a freebee the way it is now to interrupt the function of the senate and second you are before the american people your colleagues and you have to make your case, and the public can weigh in on whether you are a hero or a bum. >> stephanie: there you go. you have seen the latest polls that congress is a little more popular that chlamydia, and a little less popular that ebole la. >> yeah. it is a situation that has been with us for six years, and lyndon b. johnson in six years as majority le
mccain, who lost in the 2008 presidential race said, "i would like to have seen some more outreach." house speaker john boehner has a question on his home page on the web, asking "will senate democrats ever pass a budget. the last time they tackled the most basic responsibility of governing was on april 29, 2009." with the house set to vote this week, the speaker's office has a new graphic on the web page showing just some of the things that could of been done in a similar four-year span. they include building the pentagon three times, go on 179 round trips to the moon, or build the keystone xl pipeline twice. president obama has won more inaugural event to attend to. that is this morning. the president and vice-president joe biden will be attending a prayer service at the national cathedral. that begins around 9:45. you can watch it on c-span3 or listen to it here on c-span radio. acts at about 10:30. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >[video clip] >> from the start, organized military of always spent a lot of their time fighting a conventional, a regular war
adull terer newt gingrich who called the speech goofy left wingism. then the bitter john mccain complained that there wasn't enough bipartisanship, which is particularly rich. and "the wall street journal" described it as contemptuous talk. what do these people want, the president to announce he was going to invade iran? >> it's funny, newt gingrich in an interview said he felt like 80% of the speech that reagan could have delivered this speech. what he thought was the liberal kind of gobbledygook i think was around climate change. i also remember that newt gingrich -- >> stop laughing, karen. >> -- was sitting on a couch with nancy pelosi talking about the need to address climate change. he's seemingly had a change of heart around that. this is to be expected. the president gives a speech that's the most robust defense of liberalism that he has given that has probably been given in public in the last 10 or 20 years -- >> you say that but actually the context of the speech was embracing the nation. he was trying to be inclusive. >> right. >> i think that's right. he had that lin

in california, there is the dreadful possibility we might have seen the reinauguration of president mccain and vice president palin. it was a political choice. tico, let me put this to you... what are you hoping to see from the president in his second term and additionally in his state of the union? is he going to be an advocate in chief or do you think he's going to do more? >> there are a lot of upcoming opportunities for the obama administration to stand strongly on the side of fairness and equality. one of them is that the supreme court is going to take up marriage equality in march. his department of justice will have the opportunity to put in briefs and we know that the obama administration is opposing the so-called defense of marriage act. i think the real question that came up at the white house press briefing is whether they will oppose the discriminatory prop 8 from california. the question is whether states can discriminate and what the president thinks about that. i hope that he will take the logical next step from his beautiful remarks yesterday and weigh in on both issues. >>
the big issue, frankly. we sent some pretty bad signals around immigration. george w. bush, john mccain, jon kyl, and ted kennedy had an immigration bill in 2007 and it failed. and i felt at that moment that that was the real missed opportunity. we've got to get comprehensive immigration reform back on the agenda. there are some republicans like marko rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. and i think on som some of the core values, the notion of fiscal responsibility, strong national defense, individual responsibility, yes, federalism, that there are things the states ought to do that the federal government can't do. i think those are widely popular among the american people. but if you-- if you send messages that there are whole segments of the populationing that are not welcome, not only is it bad politics, but it's bad policy because without immigration, robust immigration, we have the same sclerotic demographices of japan and europe. so the united states has the-- the republican party has both a pol

beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
's right, john mccain tried, too, then had to back away when he ran for the republican nomination. the president in talking to his aides, his advisors this morning thinks on immigration he has an opportunity here in part because of his electoral victory. republicans looked at that said, we can no longer continue as a party that has such dismal showing with minorities and young voters. we have to improve our position on the yes of immigration. former florida governor jeb bush said that during the last republican campaign during the last presidential campaign. so the president thinks that by that outside pressure will create a condition where republicans will be willing to work with him. so he's putting pressure from the outside but then saying and thinking according to this advisor, that he really can make common cause with some republicans in the senate and in particular to do something big on immigration. >> john, thank you. bill whitaker, our correspondent in los angeles has been watching today's events along with a group of latinos who voted for mr. obama. bill, what are they
newtown. senator john mccain is on the senate foreign relations panel now. so is senator rand paul. on the senate side we may have some more pointed questions, but we will have to see. on the house side, they say they want to have more bipartisan attitude towards hearings. it is hard to tell at this point. there's a lot of new blood. this is their first chance, a big public opportunity to show where they are headed. so it is hardr -- to tell. probably the senate will have more pointed questions. host: give us a hint of something you will be watching for today. is there anything secretary clinton could do to damage your future politically? anything the republicans could do that might signify how confirmation hearings could go in the next couple weeks for secretary of state? guest: a few lawmakers, and the gramm in particular, have said that they had wanted to hear her testify before taking action on senator john kerry. -- lindsey graham in particular has said. the fallout from benghazi is already happened, to a large extent. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, s
-- the mccain one -- [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: the merckly one is the good one. >> caller: yeah, we can't get anything done on guns or creating jobs on saving medicare, we don't have a chance to do that unless we make it harder for republicans to block the votes. >> stephanie: right. >> this is the biggest story of president obama's history to this point -- >> stephanie: that's right. >> caller: he is the senator from oregon and i want everybody to call their senator and tell them to vote yes to the merckly amendment. at least this would make it harder -- it would force them to talk. it wouldn't be silent and it would get more attention to maybe the media would actually be forced to tell people what is going on. >> stephanie: yes. and by the way a number of unions announced opposal to the amendment. the president yesterday. >> obama: hunters and sportsmen, if responsible gun owners if americans of every background stand up and say enough. we have suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will -- change will
? >> 99% say their money is lost. >> so much for the nra. john nichols as a friend of bill. john mccain fugelsang joins us when we come back. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. [ music ] >> heard around the country and seen on current tv this is "the bill press show." >> bill: wow. 33 minutes after the hour. what a great date, friday january 18th. this is the full court press coming to you live from our nation's capitol. that's washington, d.c. >> that's where we are on capitol hill brought to you today by afsmee the largest public employee and healthcare workers' union in the entire country under pre
between now and 2007 when you were talking to senators kennedy and mccain, and are you more hopeful this time? thanks. >> you know, i believe that -- and i say this somewhat anecdotally, but there have been more people coming out in favor. there is, there are people who have moderated their stance on this from six years ago, and i think part of that is just an understanding that no action is very bad for the country. um, i also would like to say because i believe you have an asian background, you know, we're -- the question about future flow is excellent. we, this is not just about hispanic immigration, or this is not just about undocumented hispanic immigration. this is about immigration from the world. asians are making a great contribution in this country. africans are making a great contribution in this country. latin americans are making a great contribution. so as we think about the future flow -- because this was of an issue in 2007, and it was, it just goes to show there's not just one party that has a problem with these things. without the future flow, we are in trouble. wi
, and there are consequences to winning. we remember him using similar words back on health care with john mccain in the room. hey, i won and there are consequences to that. i think a lot of people are raising questions about leadership. to mary katherine's point, juan, the goal is to make sure that a newtown situation never happens again. the president didn't mention entertainment. he didn't mention much about mental health. so if you really want to address these props, if you really want to prevent them, are you trying to make republicans look bad or trying to make a solution here? >> martha, the first part of your question is about power, the exercise of power. and let me point out that president bush, the first president bush, president clinton and others used executive orders on guns in just exactly the same manner. we could go back to president johnson, the aftermath of the '60s assassinations doing much the same thing. martha: that's right. >> this is not out of line with presidential use of power which would seem to be what mr. , senator cruz is trying to argue. and then the second part, you know, th
seated and was watching john mccain in particular, and the lines he applauded for, the lines he did not, you can look at that as portending what is possible on capitol hill. he applauded on a lot of the lines of the deficit and the mention of newtown and other issues, but notably on immigration reform, he just sort of sat there while other members did applaud. whether or not you can read something into that, i am not sure, but it is definitely an opportunity for reaction on the other side. host: to all of these issues we have been addressing the last hour, i want to look at something your colleague wrote in "the washington post." "if the president can reach a broad deal that settles some of the disputes over entitlement spending and tax code and govgiving the government borrowing authority to last through much of the term, he can use that energy to forge a bipartisan, rise on these other big issues to." guest: that is a huge point. one point that ms. mcconnell, republican leader in the senate, has made over and over again is the reason they are using to get them as leverage is they feel
, what are we going to do? the tone was pretty much set by arizona senator john mccain. >> should he be confirmed, and i'm confident he will be, i'm sure we will have our disagreements which i know neither of us will hesitate to bring to the other's attention. but i know he will acquit himself in that office with distinction and use his many talents and his indefatigable persistence to advance our country's interests. and i commend his nominationing to you -- his nomination to you without reservation. >> reporter: at this point senators seem to think that john kerry will be our next secretary of state. he is not believed to be one of the more controversial nominations, and so perhaps they will save their fight for a more controversial pick. uma? uma: looks like smooth sailing for the senator. thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. jon: well, our military faces a major transformation. the pentagonner shoe -- issuing a statement officially lifting a ban against women fighting on the front lines. right now we are waiting to hear from defense secretary panetta and the chairman of t
